What Makes Water Mitigation at a Seattle Business Premises Challenging?
SERVPRO Relies on Vast Experience to Identify Simple Issues That Can Complicate Water Damage
Water exposure to items and structural elements at your Seattle business premises can leave you facing a myriad of problems. At the very least, costs can accumulate from the repair work needed, or you might lose revenue if you are forced to close down or limit operations.
Performing timely and effective water mitigation at your Settle business premises allows immediate resumption of operations and saves costs. A professional like SERVPRO helps identify all unique problems that develop from the incident and the best ways to resolve them.
The actions that help mitigate water damage may not be that complex and include:
- Drying wet materials
- Cleaning soiled areas
However, even for these seemingly straightforward actions, you can run into headwinds once you start the renovation process. Various factors complicate the process, especially if handled by an untrained person or regular janitorial staff.
Some simple issues that hinder water mitigation can be:
- Insufficient water extraction power
- Using the wrong cleaning products
- Failure to trace all moisture
Water exists in different states once it is released into your property. Some water is absorbed by porous materials, some pools on surfaces, while a small percentage escapes into the air through evaporation. Your mitigation efforts must address all these forms of moisture. Otherwise, secondary problems such as odor, condensation, and mold can continue affecting your premises. SERVPRO technicians have the appropriate tools to take moisture readings, including moisture meters and thermo-hygrometers. Large, trailered-in desiccant dehumidifiers are at the ready for our SERVPRO technicians.
One solution that helps address most of these aspects is using equipment with sufficient extraction power. Apart from clearing up pools faster, powerful extraction equipment helps porous materials dry faster by minimizing the amount of moisture handled during the drying phase. Our SERVPRO technicians use portable and truck-mounted extractors.
